Sector Perform
Kimberly-Clark price target lowered to $107 from $121 at RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Nik Modi lowered his price target on Kimberly-Clark to $107 and kept his Market Perform rating after the company's in-line Q1 earnings and maintained FY18 outlook. Modi notes that while the organic sales growth was better than expected amid stronger U.S. performance and easy comps, pricing was down. The analyst adds that the input costs are also expected to rise by as much as $150M above prior view on higher commodity price assumptions, presenting downside risks in FY18 amid an already competitive industry environment.

Underweight
Kimberly-Clark initiated with an Underweight at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian initiated Kimberly-Clark (KMB) with an Underweight rating and $94 price target, as he contends the company faces multiple fundamental pressures to long-term revenue growth, including market share risk in the diaper category from a "refocused Procter & Gamble (PG), a private label push by U.S. retailers, and local competition in China. These pressures, combined with what he sees as company guidance for FY18 EPS that is too high, create 4-5% of potential EPS downside compared to consensus in each of the next three years, Mohsenian tells investors.
